Subacute Care Center

Schwab’s short-term, hospital-based Subacute Care Unit has been a leader in providing highly skilled care and comprehensive rehabilitation therapy to patients needing a bridge from an acute hospitalization to home. Our hospital-based program allows for 24 hour physician coverage and more individually based therapy, services not often found in nursing home based subacute programs. We treat a wide variety of disabilities including patients with joint replacements, cardiac surgeries, stroke, Parkinson’s disease and deconditioning. Regardless of the disability, our ultimate goal is to maximize independence and return the patient to their previous level of function.

Our Subacute unit is one of few in the region that is part of a freestanding rehabilitation hospital. This gives our patients access to additional rehabilitation resources seldom found in nursing homes.

Our approach
Our Subacute Care Medical Director takes pride in knowing that her leadership skills have enabled the unit to continue to meet and exceed industry standards. Our doctors treat medically complex patients who suffer from multiple health problems and who require specific pre- or post-acute rehabilitation therapy. The Subacute Care Unit also treats patients who are recovering from open heart surgery or transplant surgery; patients who are recovering from major joint replacement procedures; stroke patients; amputees; individuals with brain injuries, burns, diabetes and spinal cord injuries.
